4:45:25 PM                                                                                                                    
REPRESENTATIVE  LYNN  made  a  motion   to  adopt  the  committee

CHAIR OLSON objected for purpose of discussion.                                                                                 
4:45:47 PM                                                                                                                    
MR.  FICK explained  that HB  221 makes  a single  change to  the                                                               
state's mortgage  licensing law.   He  indicated that  two things                                                               
need  to happen  in order  for Alaska's  law to  comply with  the                                                               
federal Secure  and Fair Enforcement  for Mortgage  Licensing Act                                                               
of  2008  (SAFE Act).    The  SAFE  Act  requires all  states  to                                                               
implement a  mortgage law  that confirms  to its  requirements by                                                               
July 30,  2009, and that all  states use a national  database for                                                               
licensing mortgage loan  originators.  This bill  would allow the                                                               
Department  of Commerce,  Community,  &  Economic Development  to                                                               
participate in the National Mortgage  Licensing System (NMLS) and                                                               
use their  database, which  is the time  sensitive element.   The                                                               
fiscal note provides for the one-time  fee of $50,000 to join the                                                               
NMLS, and $20,000 for computer system upgrades.                                                                                 
4:46:36 PM                                                                                                                    
CHAIR OLSON  commented that  this bill  has been  a collaborative                                                               
effort between his  office and Representative Lynn's  office.  He                                                               
stated his intention  to continue to work on  the remaining issue                                                               
during the interim.  He explained that the issue is complex.                                                                    
4:47:08 PM                                                                                                                    
MR. FICK mentioned that the sunset  date in the bill sends an odd                                                               
message  to  the HUD  since  the  state  will join  the  national                                                               
database, but will stop using the database in 2012.                                                                             
4:48:21 PM
